I wonder if anyone has a recipe on how to make coleslaw at home without using ready-made dressings to prepare. I really like those prepared at restaurants, but I have not approached me the recipe. Also in Chinese restaurants prepare cabbage-carrot on a marinage I also like very much. If someone wants to share a recipe I thank you very much.

There is a recipe for Thai Coleslaw made at Claim Jumper restaurant that I love and found a copycat recipe online. Its so good.
Thai Coleslaw - Claim Jumper
1/2 head napa cabbage, thinly sliced
1/2 zucchini, julienned
2 jumbo carrots, julienned
2 green onions, sliced
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
3 tablespoons shaved coconut
3 tablespoons roasted unsalted peanuts
2 tablespoons toasted almonds
8 ounces Thai sweet chili sauce (Lingham’s brand is good)
8 ounces orange juice 1/2 ounce honey
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped fine 1/2 teaspoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cilantro, chopped fine
1 tablespoon sesame oil
For salad: Combine cabbage, zucchini, carrots, onions, sesame seeds, coconut, peanuts and almonds in large bowl. Chill until ready to use.
For dressing: Place ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk together. Slowly add sesame oil while whisking. Pour desired amount, about 1/4 cup, over chilled salad vegetables. Serve.
PS I add fresh grated ginger, don't usually have zucchini or coconut and still tastes great-its the sauce. Carrots are good julienned but shredded okay too.
Its forgiving and you can change it a bit if its too hot-less chili sauce.
Hope this is what you had in mind

PS I usually do this with purple cabbage
a small head and 5-10 medium carrots, 1/2 cup peanuts as the main thing and now I do it by eye
